Anyone else having issues with the auto conquer not conquering territories according to the upgraded level? Currently at 45% In current game I’m at 1 million+ armies and it’s not auto conquering 72k territories. Tried disabling and enabling. Tried rebooting device. Nothings working.
Additionally, in challenge levels it is capturing based on a 5% auto conquer rate.
Just wondering if it’s a little glitch or if multiple people are having the issue.

Just maxed auto conquer (attack when bordering territories are 50% of armies or less) and did some math, it appears to be conquering on a 5-6.6% rate. It was also doing this while the auto conquer was at 45%.
I don’t remember it doing it at 40% so if you are at 40%, don’t bother going higher until this is addressed.

Auto-conquer now considers empty territories differently from non-empty ones. If the territory has an asset (mine, cache, army camp, etc.) it will work exactly as described. However, if it's empty, it requires more armies before it will conquer it.
Sorry for not explaining this -- I will modify the text in the next update so it's clearer.
This is a good thing, as it means it'll prioritize things that help instead of conquering a bunch of useless territories.

I understand the idea behind this. However, from my latest experience in challenge levels a player can easily found himself/herself sort of boxed in by empty territories that require a huge number of armies to capture. Choke points could be a much bigger problem. In those challenges I played it almost always seemed that whichever player broke out of the box first won regardless of their real strength. It's just a very subjective observation though.

This optimization makes sense for regular WZI, but as SubLunar points out, may not make sense for Challenge Levels.
@SubLunar, do you find challenge levels are worth completing? More specifically, that the AP you put in < AP you get out? I put in >100AP to complete level 1 to get only 100 AP, and can't clear level 2 without spending a bunch more AP.

AP wise generally? Absolutely not. I take them simply as other levels that are available for one to play. Although "thanks" to what I described in my previous post I was able to win I think about 20 levels just by purchasing the basic 5% of auto-upgrade army camps.

Also, if it has a bonus and is captured at your actual rate, what is the rate that the “useless” territories are captured? And isn’t that kind of dumb? As how do you find bonus territories without taking “useless” territories?

Good point. This whole issue is the repercussion of putting more armies on non-empty territories as a mean to remove dullness from endgames. While it was a good idea I think it caused more problems than it actually solved.

Yeah after watching it in action all day... terrible decision.
If I wanted to have to capture all these territories myself I wouldn’t of maxed the auto conquer ap advancement... worst part is I’ll be gone for like 4 hrs and come back to making the same gold income as when I left. Then I’ll manually capture the 15 territories it hasn’t, and my gold income will double.
@Fizzer, if that is a permanent change can you refund me all the ap spent on upgrading the auto conquer? I’ll just leave it at 5% and use the ap for the auto army camp upgrade or something useful

I managed to clear the 1st two a while back by buying 20% AC but I guess need to raise that % or buy auto-army upgrades or something other "auto" ability that doesn't really help in the standard game (or minimally isn't the best use of available AP compared to other upgrades) in order to beat the Floating Rocks. But as I said before, those upgrades cost more than the 100 AP beating each level brings, so if further upgrades are required for each level, it's an AP draining exercise, so not bothering.
